@Canoli@Jeyma If you two are still about and willing, then I'd accept sheets from you.


Oh shit, I haven't subbed to the thread or been on the site in a while since I thought this was cancelled. Good news!

And yeah I'm still willing, I'll start reading through the other sheets right away (so I can differentiate my own sheet a bit).

God damn it, I fucking hate that the site removes the paragraphs I made in Word...

Anyway, this is the first draft of the sheet. Up to you know, @Jbcool





If it is not obvious by the sheet, I am very much "applying" the character to the "Condottiere/General/Leader" role.

Just to make y'all aware I'm traveling away from tomorrow for just over two weeks.

Going travelling around Thailand so internets will likely be very limited in the more off the track places, but I'll still be on where possible.

@Canoli Sheets looking good! I'd actually say you can post him into the char sheet if you so wish. As for being the leader, well, seems that you and Bishop's lizard-man may have to duke that out...

@Tsar Gatto You lucky cat you, one of the places I'd love to visit; enjoy yourself, I'll look forward to any participation you can give us.

The ultimate in leader selection for mercenaries: Fist fiiiiight!

On a separate note, I too will be disappearing from actual IC posting from the first through the tenth or eleventh, as I have to drive a moving van cross-country(not mine). So if we start up while I am gone, know that I am reading and will post when I can. Thankfully Ahk isn't actually a real merc yet.

Hey, @Jbcool, are you gonna update the first post of the first page? Might wanna do that so people who wanna join aren't confused when they later find out that the role they want is already taken.

Dang it, I read through the opening post and the accepted sheets and noted a lack of both leaders as well as a minority of humans, so that's what I tried to address. Oh well.

What are your thoughts on this @Bishop?

Well, one of you could take top and the other second-in-command. Which raises another question, at least from me:

@Jbcool I am assuming, from the titles of the leadership positions, that there will be some significant number of NPC mercenaries running about with this group. It would also be kinda hard to merc around with only seven people, no matter how good they are. Is this correct, or are we a Firefly type group?

Gonna let Canoli have the leader on this one since his whole cs is built around that one trait.

So, who recruits everyone? The leader or my character, the co leader, who is recruited by the leader to recruit others?

Annoyingly short post, but it didn't really make sense for Ahk to be wondering around in a crowd without a good reason. So instead we get to play Who Gets Injured in the Intro Arc First?

Just checking in, letting you know I'm here. Was working on an introductory post, which made a couple of questions pop up. I'd like to know what you thought about the questions quoted below, @Jbcool

@Jbcool I am assuming, from the titles of the leadership positions, that there will be some significant number of NPC mercenaries running about with this group. It would also be kinda hard to merc around with only seven people, no matter how good they are. Is this correct, or are we a Firefly type group?

Personally, I'm thinking there's bound to be NPC members of the band, making up the bulk of the numbers, whereas the PCs are - obviously - the most important members and the ones driving the narrative.

Then, there's Bishop's question;

So, who recruits everyone? The leader or my character, the co leader, who is recruited by the leader to recruit others?

While reading the IC and thinking about my own first post, I've been trying to come up with an angle to deal with this. In my CS I wrote, and I quote, "He became a freelance mercenary working for the highest bidder, and it wasn’t long before he formed his own team of discerning mercenaries.". What I surmise is that perhaps my character's crew already exist(ed) but recently got disbanded/demolished/split up following [insert reason here], my character now having made his way to Taenarum to begin anew and start recruiting again.

IDK, I'm just trying to work out the setup a bit before I end up writing myself into a corner, and these are just some thoughts. Either way, the formation of the group as well as the accepting of the contract mentioned IC seem like something best figured out OOC.

Well, the reasons for a merc leader to need recruits again are myriad. He could need to fill out ranks due to a particularly attrition-heavy job; have suffered significant loss of numbers due to people mustering out to either better jobs, retirement, etc; have suffered a loss of potential recruits and current members due to a disastrous last job. Mercs tend to be the highest turnover pool in the job sector for any given period of history.

Ultimately, the decision is yours, but I personally like the idea of a guy trying to build rep after a bad series of jobs. Makes for a better chance for the "motley" in our crew to be realistic.

@FoxFire Possibly, feel free to produce a sheet; as we haven't gone anywhere yet, there may be space.
